2015-2016 Book Selection
The 2015-16 One Book, One Richmond book selection was Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson.
Just Mercy is a powerful true story about an idealistic lawyer’s coming of age, a moving portrait of those he defended, and an inspiring argument for compassion in the pursuit of justice. The book serves as a clarion call to fix our broken system of justice — from one of the most influential lawyers of our time.
Programs based on themes found in the book were offered throughout the year, including a lecture by the author in February 2016.
